The Project Manager for the sewer project provided an update that the RV Yard entrance will not be blocked the rest of this week or next week. If there are short, periodic blocks, vehicles will still be able to pass through.

However, from Monday, July 6th through the end of the day on Tuesday, July 7th, the entrance will be blocked.

We will pass along any information we receive as it pertains to this situation.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Lady Bugs – Lady Bugs

LADY BUGS – LADY BUGS
You may be noticing small yellow mesh bags that were recently placed in the Oak, Linden, and some Maple trees in the area. The bags contain Lady Bugs who love to dine on aphids and once they leave the bags, they help to organically control any aphid problems we might have. The Lady Bugs are capable of eating about 50 times their own weight and will stay in the area for 3-4 months.
Please do not remove the bags from the trees – Garron’s crews will do that when we are sure all the Lady Bugs are dispersed.

Thanks.

Reminder- Feeding of Wild birds or animals except Hummingbirds is Prohibited in CHOA

As you know, we have seen an increase in the number of wild animals in Charbonneau- there have been recent reports and sightings of  Skunks, Raccoons, Rats and Mice.  Also, the local Squirrel population is getting larger.  They like to chew on the sprinkler heads which can destroy them and then we have to spend CHOA funds to replace the sprinkler heads.

In order to try to stem this trend, we want to help eliminate as much of their food sources as possible.  Therefore, we are asking that each CHOA neighbor refrain from feeding any animals and/or birds anywhere in CHOA or around your home except for Hummingbirds.  This includes inside your courtyard also.

In addition, please feed your pets indoors only and don’t leave them unsupervised outside.

Thanks in advance for your help here to make CHOA a safer neighborhood.

CHOA Spring Pruning

CHOA spring pruning has begun.

Garron Grounds crews will be working throughout June on the annual maintenance pruning. Shrubs and plants will be trimmed unless you are on the “no prune list”. Those that are obstructing windows will be pruned to below-window height. If there are specific items you do not want pruned, please tag those with a blue ribbon that can be seen by the crews.

We will do selective pruning of rhododendrons based on pruning standards and bloom time. “Deadheading” rhododendrons is not included in the maintenance schedule.

PLEASE NOTE THIS SCHEDULE MIGHT CHANGE DUE TO WEATHER OR OTHER WORKING CONDITIONS.

If you have any questions, please call Steve Chinn or Karen Siegel. We ask that you do not approach the crews as they are assigned specific duties and any change should come from their supervisor.

We’re looking forward to a beautiful spring and summer.

When are the pools opening?

When are the CHOA Pools Opening?

As you may know, the Governor has limited the use of all public pools in the state during the Phase 1 of the reopening of Oregon. Clackamas County (including Charbonneau) is currently in Phase 1. It is anticipated that Clackamas County will reach Phase 2 in mid to late June. When that milestone is reached, we believe we will be able to open the Pools with new social distancing and sanitary rules.

We will continue to monitor this situation and keep you informed as we know more.

Thanks,

Barry
